HC Deb 27 February 1945 vol 408 c1262W
Captain Poole

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of War Transport if he is aware of the great hardship suffered by the residents of Swinfen, Wee-ford and Littlehay owing to the absence of any omnibus service; and will he now endeavour at least to restore a weekly omnibus between these villages and Lichfield.

Mr. Noel-Baker

I regret that the position is still the same as when I wrote to my hon. and gallant Friend on 12th January. Lack of crews precludes the restoration of this service at present. I understand that there are three return journeys on Saturdays between Weeford and Tam-worth and that Littlehay is only a little more than half a mile from the Lichfield-Birmingham route on which there is a regular service.
